On Wednesday police will stage a 24-hour operation to catch drivers and passengers failing to belt up.
Since the start of April, Police Scotland has detected more than 18,000 people not wearing a seat belt or who failed to belt up children in their cars.
An estimated one in three fatal crash victims were not wearing a seat belt.
Inspector Grant Edward, head of road policing in Tayside, said: "It's easy to get the impression that you are travelling safely when you are sitting comfortably inside a moving vehicle. That's an illusion."
Drivers face the fixed penalty ticket if they or any passengers under 14 are caught not wearing a seat belt.
Inspector Edward added: "It could not be clearer: seat belts save lives."
